. the people who elected us to serve deserve the best information that we can publicly provide them. so we are glad that you and the general are with us this morning to do just that. among the challenges that we face is a self-inflicted wound, one with the fact that director clapper has rightly said amplify the other threats that we come from around the world that challenges the and prioritized cuts required by sequestration. this committee is interested in hearing from both of you today about the impact of the fy 2013 sequestration and the impact it's having on the intelligence community's ability to provide us for the national security. the self-inflicted wound is all the more unfortunate because the national security professionals already have plenty to worry about. as the most open and interconnected society on earth, the united states is uniquely vulnerable to attacks on computer networks that were critical to our economy. to that of barp of public services and national security. iran and north korea ar clerl ying ire fensi arewi attacks. china and russia possess formidable capabilit

sacrifice and service to our country. let me move right to the afghan general elections in 2014. we agreed it would be difficult to overstate the importance of these elections. in your assessment what happens toween now and april of 2014 ensure the elections are free and fair but recognized to be free and fair by the afghan public? >> the first condition for successful elections is security. in summer of 2013, from my perspective is very important. we need to emerge with security in those areas, particularly areas that are important to the elections. we need to merge with a perception of security. one of the things that was determined as free and fair was reclusive. i mentioned there are 7000 polling stations. we need to make sure the security such as people have access to those stations -- from a security perspective that is important. has anistry of interior gauge on security. >> let me move to the local police. we talked about their important role and you talked about how the town of fancies that program. if my memory is right he said they are the most significant issues the taliban wil

like background checks and a president who is just re-elected and riding a wave, can't make anything move that way. i think there is a problem there, and i think he is having, as somebody said, a problem with the levers of power. >> maybe the problem is also the structure of the senate. at the turn of the 20th century when public sentiment wanted a lot of things done to deal with industrialization and the problem of the slums, the senate was impossible it to move because it was millionaires in there. they finally realized they have to have direct election of senators. they used to be elected by the state legislators and were susceptible to special interest. maybe that's the problem given the 60 votes needed, given who they listen to, the power of special interest, public sent is imt cannot pen trade. we've seen it for the last decade. it's not just the senate, the congress. >> majority leader harry reid follow the president? it's not working there. >> but in those states in which the senators vote d against the background checks, it's not even close to 90% in terms of wanting it. it'
elections, especially like those in 2012, it's very natural to debate what happened. looking at causes, solutions, tactics and strategy. indeed, it would be odd, especially with conservatives, not to debate those kinds of things. one popular argument is to adjust to changing times to focus on alternative versions of the status quo rather than changing directions. to change policies and sometimes principles, to adapt to new political environments. another approach, one that we favor, is to lay out a better and clearer conservative vision of american society. the role of government, unlimited opportunity, of political self-government. rather than new principles, what we need are better arguments. and when you take those arguments -- we need to take those arguments to the american people. it is in that spirit that we welcome today's speaker to heritageouat mike lee is in th third year of his first term. that means more terms to follow. the first -- the third year of his first term as united states senator from the state of utah. his background is in the law and, actually, he began his bac
is a mayor who helps neighborhoods. that's why he keeps getting elected, although he's going out now. god bless him. he's served 20 years for us. but i think that's -- i'm sure people all over the world are watching, saying, that's the mayor of boston? he doesn't sound like much of an orator. he's not. he's lousy at it. he admits it. he makes fun of himself for that. the reality is tom menino knows that neighborhood and he's our mayor. and the richard family, they're our people and they will be taken care of. but how do they recover from that? how do they ever have a good day after what happened to martin, what happened to janeny, the little sister who lost her leg? how does little henry recover from this seeing what happened to his siblings? how does poor bill richard recover from this? the one good thing, friends of mine who are very friendly with the richards say denise is making good progress. first couple of days, it was touch and go. hopefully denise will fully recover. hopefully -- we have to figure out some way -- janie was a great irish dancer. we have to get her a prosthesis. sh
to retire rather than run for re-election in 2014. baucus joined three other democrats senators mark pryor of arkansas mark begich of alaska and heidi heitkamp of north dakota in helping the minority of having a vote on a bill that would have strengthened background checks for gun buyers, a poll that 90% of the people supported. but that number, the number that really counted in that debate was 60. the 60 votes need to the break a filibuster. supporters were able to muster 55 votes in favor of the bill, not enough to move it forward. even if the democrat defectors had stayed with their party. majority leader harry reid switched his vote to no to preserve an option to bring the bill up again. many critics are blaming president obama's inability to strike fear in the senate for the bill's failure to pass. former north dakota senator byron dorgan, a democrat, told "the new york times"... >>> and "new york times" columnist maureen dowd, a perennial white house scold... >> john: at the white house monday, press secretary jay carney insisted president obama did all he could but was blocked by th
they had a bad day today was because today it was reported that max baucus would not be seeking re-election to a seventh term as united states senator from montana. the reason this is bad for those people who are working for k street lobbying firm is because with this news they are suddenly far less valuable lobbyists. if you think this is just me cattaraugusi i casting aspersions this was studied and it showed that lobbyists with experience in the office of a u.s. senator suffer a 24% drop in generated revenue when that senator leaves office. baucus land is influence that stretches west from capitol hill where baucus has served for nearly four decades, the first four as a congressman, the past 34 years as senator, out into the vast hill side of lobbying and influence peddling that is washington, d.c. in fact, in such a -- it is such a legendary nation, baucus land the "new york times" saw fit to write an entire article about the universe of people who moved from senator baucus' office to k street. at least 2 aides since 2001 have lobbied on tax issues during the obama administration more t
of the matter is we have a lot of people, 62% of the people come out and vote during presidential elections. " in terms of the number of people who are involved, that number is pretty small. tavis: i digress on that. i hope you're wrong about how this will end up. let's spend some time on the budget. the good news is there will be a lot of debate on this in the coming weeks. hope to have you back to talk more about this budget as it advances. let's take a few minutes to talk about what it means that this cuttingas the president social security, it has the president cutting medicare, you and a few other members of congress delivered almost 2.9 5,000,002 measures to the white house just days ago saying do not do this. yet the white house did anyway. what is your read tonight on the budget? >> the think the president has made a huge mistake in terms of public policy. the most important economic reality facing america today is the middle class is disappearing and we got a heck of a lot of people living in poverty. the wealthiest 1% are doing phenomenally well. mind is unconscionable to do what
. you talk about reaching policy makers and politician and elected officials, how do we reach them? you can be the best lawyer in the world, but if you don't have an investigator and you don't have the resources you are not going to be able to do a competent job. i understand that we can train individual defenders to be better defenders but how do we get those resources? >> how do we get the resources? there is not one answer to this question. i absolutely agree with karen and don that these stories move people and we have to use these stories in books and movies to get legislators who are human beings to recognize that there is a real injustice out there. i think we need to push for more funds and more resources. i think all of that is really important. the piece we bring to it is in the meantime our lawyers represent 300 people a year. the most common call i get from a lawyer, they say, i understand what my clients deserve and i can't give it to them and i think i need to quit. i i can't do what you all do. i tell them about a book i read called freedom summer about the summer projec

to what this experiment would look like. to make a product of the discretionary act by those elected. so goes with that experiment the tentativeness of what this commitment would actually be. why is why -- which is why i would like to see what the mayor's office and board of supervisors to look at those forms of discipline and what they look like to us. >> i recognize the fear -- and i think it's a fear, not even a concern that professor simon has creating an assessment tool that can be manipulated for low-level offenses or drug offenses that can end up like the impact much like we have today with the commercial bail system. but i believe there is a way that we can create validated risk assessment tools that would look at the areas of concern. whether we are talking about the likelihood for reoffending in a violent way or the likelihood of not showing up in court. i think there are systems in place that show a tremendous amount of promise. and we can continue to go down that path to create that tool to avoid to the greatest extent possible picking on those things that frankly large peop

there was no point to have it. we had to vote to appoint him because by our charter we appoint, not elect. the selection committee votes on it and it goes to the board and our board today voted to appoint him, both in the section of our board meeting. it was to afford him the courtesy to talk to his own board and the people he needed to talk to before we could inform our board. and that was unfortunately a time lag of about 6 weeks. and he of course wanted to give proper notice and that's why he will not be officially joining us until june 1st. >> any other questions? okay. well thank you all very much. i hope we'll see you many many times in our press conferences and our dealings with our new director and the great success that i'm sure he will bring for the success here at the fine arts museums. thank you.

, particularly in the political circumstances of 1850 when it was exhibited. in the elections of may 1849, about 1/3 of the votes in the countryside had been polled for radical republican candidates who opposed the presidency of louis napoleon. to the urban bourgeoisie, these rural republicans seemed a threat to the whole social order. courbet was born here in ornans, the son of a prosperous farmer, a member of the class which the parisians had found so puzzling when they saw it depicted in the burial. courbet presented himself as a man of the country... a sort of natural being with untamed appetites. courbet was also an anarchist, a follower of pierre-joseph proudhon, who wanted to do away with central government and create a classless society of free individuals. individualism and realism were closely connected for courbet, who felt that the artist could only realize himself through an immersion in the physical world.

the courage to petition their elected leaders. not just to honor the memory of their children but to protect the lives of all of our children. a few minutes ago, a minority in the united states senate decided it wasn't worth it. they blocked commonsense gun reforms even while these families looked on from the senate gallery. by now it's well known that 90% of the american people support universal background checks that make harder for a dangerous person to buy a gun. we're talked about convicted felons, people convicted of domestic violence, people with a severe mental illness. 90% of americans support that idea. most americans think that's already the law. a few minutes ago, 90% of democrats in the senate voted for that idea. but it's not going to happen because 90% of republicans in the senate just voted against that idea. the gun lobby and its allies willfully lied about the bill. they claimed that it would create some sort of big brother gun registry. even though the bill did the opposite. this legislation in fact outlawed any registry, plain and simple, right there in the text. but that
